What could possibly be more enjoyable than curling up with a good book in the winter? Well, for the 5th graders, the answer is … reading in a book club! During Reader´s Workshop, all of our 5th grade students are reading in leveled book clubs. Each group began by reading historical fiction books on their reading levels. As students become experts on this genre, they are able to choose other books to read in their book clubs together.
Recently, we have been focusing specifically on how to have an effective conversation about what we´ve been reading in our book clubs. These book talks are really starting to shape up!
